Overview

Full steam ahead with the Tara!

The most popular Tubus front rack has been improved over recent years, and is well known as the indestructible burro. We recommend the Tara for those customers, who need a lowrider for rough use and alot of luggage. The reason why this lowrider is stronger than our others, is, that the Tara has a tube diameter of it’s maintube of 14 mm.

The Tara Big Apple is a larger version of the original Tara, it’s used for bikes that have ballon and other larger width tires.

Note: When using panniers with Ortlieb’s Lower QL-1 Hooks such as the Ortlieb Roller Classic Panniers with Tubus Tara or Duo racks, adjust the pannier’s lower mounting hook. After removing the hook, rotate the grommet 90 degrees adding an additional 5 mm of width for wider rack diameters.

    Rack

    I needed a solid working front rack, it was on sale and it was delivered a day ahead of schedule. Who could ask for better then that?

    Big Enough for 26 in Extra Terrestrials

    The rack fit my Surly Troll very well and had plenty of clearance for 26in Surly Extra Terrestrials.  I like how it keeps the front weight low but with enough clearance for gravel riding.  These were easy to install.

    Great rack!

    Rock solid fit on my Sequoia. Jr Ranger Panniers from Swift were a perfect fit to this rack as well. Would recommend Tubus racks for anyone looking for high quality and functionality.

    Awesome rack!

    I put this on my 2018 Kona rove and it works great. I had to throw a couple extra washers at the lower mount point to get around the disc brake but it was still a painless install. Some longer hex bolts and more spacer options would have been nice to have included but I managed to scrounge together some hardware in the parts bin. Campfire cycling is rad.

    Tubus Tara Rack on touring rig.

    I have not yet personally used the rack. It went on quickly with no surprises. Lots of tour bikes use this rack so I anticipate complete euphoria. Roads here are still icy so I won't know for a while how mine works. I was happy to find the silver color here.
